Sniper Elite 5 removed from the Epic Games Store, Rebellion talks

Sniper Elite 5, the new chapter in the third-person shooter saga, has been suddenly removed from the Epic Games Store. The same software house that developed the title intervened on the matter, explaining the reasons for the incident and reassuring users that, sooner or later, the game will be available again in the digital store.

Here are the words of Rebellion:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Sniper Elite 5 was not available at launch on the Epic Games Store, but will be made available on that platform at a later date. If you are one of those who pre-ordered it there, you should have already gotten a refund. If this has not happened yet, you can request it here.

It is therefore not clear why the title, released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox Game Pass, PS4, PS5, and for PC on Steam and Windows Store yesterday, is not yet available. on the Epic home store. Either way, it shouldn’t be Rebellion’s fault.

Do not worry, however, because users will have two more ways to purchase and play Sniper Elite 5 on PC, despite the unexpected removal from the Epic Games Store. As pointed out by the same software house developer, the game will also arrive there in a more or less short time.

This title is enjoying great success both among the ranks of critics and those of the public. Let’s go, therefore, to see what it is: it is, as mentioned, a technical third-person shooter and similar, in terms of mechanics and gameplay, to its predecessor.

This time we are in France in 1944, in the middle of the Second World War. You will therefore be called to take on the role of an American army officer, such Karl Fairburne, and you will have to collaborate with the transalpine resistance to defeat a secret plan organized by the Nazis and thus put an end to the conflict, before the Allied troops arrive. .
